This one caught my fancy as an attractive off center so I picked it up.

Yes sir. You don't see those on wheats very often and when you do they are usually in nice condition!

Very nice! Lovely color. I am curious how much you paid? I see these on eBay occasionally but they go for more than I'm willing to pay.

Nice coin! I'd love to have this!




Edit: Just thinking that someone found this and dropped it in a drawer back in 1944 thinking "This might be worth a DOLLAR some day! Not like that silly junk steel 1944 cent that I found with it and tossed out the window of my 1941 Hupmobile Skylark."

It could happen.

It came up at auction on ebay and I got it for $28. Just seems a lovely coin and that's kind of the price a lesser wheat off center would go for. Doesn't really show up in my pics but it still has mint cartwheel luster.

In my opinion, $28 was a steal! For such a great looking coin, that was a bargain.

Great looking error coin. The complete bust with missing devices and great tone is a delight.
